Optimus on Linux

06 June 2016 12:02
Hi all,

I'm running blender with optirun in command line for using the nvidia cg of my laptop.
If i open a blend file from the project interface in my browser (Firefox), another instance of blender is launched without optirun.
Is it possible to change this behaviour or do i need to create a script named "blender" which launch blender with optirun?

Hello! And welcome to our forum!

Unfortunately, it is not possible to customize the command for blender invocation now.
But the following should work:
1) make a wrapper script for blender with optirun; your script should be named as "blender"
2) ensure that it runs when you typing "blender" in your console
3) run from the scripts directory
4) check http://localhost:6687/
